NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     apm - Advanced Power Management control program

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     zzz [-Sz] [-f sockname]
     apm [-ablmsSvz] [-f sockname]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     apm communicates with the Advanced Power Management  daemon,
apmd(8), making
  requests of it for current power status or to place the
system into a
     suspend or stand-by state.  With no flags, apm displays  the
current power
     management state in verbose form.

     The options are as follows:

     -a       Display the external charger (A/C status).  0 means
             1 means connected, 2 means backup power source,  and
255 means unknown.

     -b       Display  the battery status.  0 means high, 1 means
low, 2 means
             critical, 3 means charging, 4 means absent, and  255
means unknown.

     -f sockname
             Set  the name of the socket via which to contact apmd(8) to

     -l      Display the estimated battery lifetime (in percent).

     -m      Display the estimated battery lifetime (in minutes).

     -S      Put the system into stand-by (light sleep) mode.

     -s      Display if power management is enabled.

     -v      Request more verbose description  of  the  displayed

     -z      Put the system into suspend (deep sleep) mode.

     The  zzz  variant on this command is an alternative for suspending the system.
  With no arguments, zzz places the system into  suspend
mode.  The
     command  line  flags  serve  the same purpose as for the apm
variant of this

     This command does not wait for  positive  confirmation  that
the requested
     mode  has been entered; to do so would mean the command does
not return
     until the system resumes from its sleep state.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
